Overview

I am a Pediatric Otolaryngology-Head and Neck surgeon, with a interest in clinical research. My research goal is to formulate and then answer questions about clinical conditions that affect children's noses, throats, and upper airways. This research should then facilitate an improved understanding of these diseases, and be translated into better care and treatment outcomes. I am particularly interested in epidemiological research - that is the study of patterns of health and disease factors at the population level. This form of research helps inform evidence-based medicine for identifying risk factors for disease, determining optimal treatment approaches, and for preventative medicine.
